The Power of A Goal

"This is your Goal" said my son last night.



He was holding onto a Nintendo DS about six inches in front of my face.



"You're doing great, but you have to get a few more items. Remember, Mom: this is what we're working for" (again with the thing in my face).



So, the saga of the 200 items continues. I thought we had done quite well (our home group was very generous), but Wylie knows the power of visualization I suspect.



He didn't want me to rest on my laurels (or anything else I can rest on!)



Wylie is--focused.



Asperger people as a whole are very focused people.



Believe me, the current topic of interest is the fund-raiser and the DS "we" can earn with enough items sold.



I know all kids get into these things, but Wylie's determination is exceptional. It will be interesting to see how it all turns out by next Friday.



One thing is certain: I know what the goal is.

What is he selling? Perhaps I can help get "your family" that Nintendo through purchasing an item or two. Besides, it's good "karma" someday I too will have children selling things for school fundraisers. Let me know- we'll be in Yucaipa tomorrow!

You are so sweet! It's typical fundraiser fare: bakery doughs, wrapping papers, sacks, I think you can checkout the collection at www.gafundraising.com Its the Holiday Showcase Collection...
Plus, there is some cool "artisan" stuff jewelry from around the world. Lots under $10. What time will you be in town?
